Electronic Tendering Project Objective
e-Tendering ebXML Standards Project
In various industries all over the world, there are all sorts of tendering action being
performed including public works procurement project.
With an explosive spread of the Internet and a rapid growth of information technology,
we estimate that tendering activity would be actively performed electronically or through
the Internet as well as other business activities. With the realization of electronic tendering
through the Internet and spreading practice of international electronic tendering, the need for
international standardization are thought to increase.
According to such trends, this project aims to standardize business process and
information entity of cross-industrial electronic tendering.
